    But thanks for proving yourself wrong by saying that right-wing/white-nationalists have a clear lead over radical islamic terrorists.

    Appreciate your hard work.
    Yes, you are talking about deaths in the usa to prove muslims are evil, while ignoring millions of dead muslims in your analysis of christians.

    I'm glad you appreciate the correction.

They aren't happening in the USA so they must not involve real people or ideological principles either.
    Well, it is true that using "since September 12th" is an arbitrary date. We should probably use something more relevant, like "since Windows XP was released", or "since 24 first broadcast". Or maybe something a little more modern, like "since the Motorolla Razr phone was first released".

    Wait. You want to extend this little debate into Europe?

    Really? Are you out of your mind?

    Love it. Just classic zeke.

    YOU said that right-wing/white-nationalists had a clear lead in the USA over radical Islamists.

    YOU SAID THAT. And it's wrong.

    I'm extending it to the rest of the world. I brought up Europe because you seem to think that if a death doesn't occur in the United States that it didn't actually happen. And in that respect the numerous recent attacks in Europe at the hands of Islamic radicalists also doesn't count.

    If you are trying to make a "most likely to die" statement and exclude a major event by one day, then you are dishonest.

    Also, and here we have it.

    Now I'm a racist. Classic zeke. This is why you are a dishonest idiot.

    You lose an argument (by providing your own link) and then call me a racist. Wonderful.

    adorable. you get overwhelmingly corrected on your wildy erroneous race-based theory of terrorism, but still pretend to be right, then deflect with the typical conservative snowflake persecution excuse.

    You know, there's some good conversations going on but I'd really like people to pull back from the insults. I'm making a conscious effort to do so and hope others will too. It's ok to disagree but disagree with the point being made. Unfortunately we live in a highly vitriolic political environment and it really needs to be toned down and discussed. Without it, no middle ground will ever be achieved.

    Keep in mind that Johnny is an alt-right cringe-lord. Or at least, he plays one on the internet.

    Trudeau is basically the personification of everything he'd hate about our society.
